June 16 - AFRICAN CHILD DAY



The Day of the African Child has been celebrated on June 16 every year since 1991, when it was first initiated by the OAU Organisation of African Unity. It honors those who participated in the Soweto Uprising in 1976 on that day.

From Genila Hiel,


Nakumbuka June 16, 2007.
Nikiwa darasa la 3, shule ya msingi Bunju A, nilichaguliwa na walimu kwenda kuwakilisha shule yangu kwenye tukio la kuazimisha #AfricanChildDay , Pugu. Nikiwa na @WorldVision
..
Ndio siku niliyotambua kwa nini huwa tunaazimisha siku hii.
πŸ‘‡πŸΌπŸ‘‡πŸΌ 
Nikiwa ndani ya Tshirt kubwa la world vision, nilifurahia maandamano yale.
Nikiwa nimeshikilia bango likiwa limeandikwa "SIKU YA MTOTO WA AFRICA"
Sikuwa najua haki zangu kama mtoto, sikuwa najua kuna watoto walizililia wakati fulani nyuma.
Kuzijua kama mtoto ni muhimu, ilinipa chachu ya kutaka kujua zaidi.
Kujua ni nini watoto hupitia nyuma ya kuja shule, kucheza, kufurahi, kutabasamu.
Kuna mengi machungu hufanywa kwao, na kwa wakati fulani hukosa pa kukimbilia, maana wakuwakimbilia ndio huyafanya hayo.
Nafurahia siku hii sababu hukumbusha watu sehemu ya mtoto kwenye jamii.
Hukumbusha watu namna watoto wenye uthubutu walipaza sauti zao kwa ajili yao, na kwa ajili ya watoto wengine wote Afrika.
Kwa kushirikiana na mashirika mbalimbali, kila mtu kwenye jamii ana jukumu la kumlinda mtoto, bila kuzingatia ni wangu au ni wa yule.
Kuwa sehemu ya tabasamu na mafanikio yake.
Mtengenezee mazingira ya kutimiza ndoto zake.

Sasa hivi, nikiwa mwaka wa pili chuoni.
Bado natambua siku hii muhimu.
Na kwa sehemu yangu, bado nawasaidia watoto wengine kupaza sauti zao kwa ajili ya kutimiziwa haki zao, kwa ajili ya mafanikio yao.

Day of the African Child has been celebrated on 16June to commemorate those killed during the Soweto Uprising in South Africa, and to recognize the courage of the students who marched for their right to an education.
In 2020 we reflect on Access to a child-friendly Justice System.

Strive to be a learner & put self growth above everything else. Also learn French as a language as it is very important if you want to communicate with fellow Africans. #ChildOfAfrica @TumainiMakole @FridonM @ArabiFrank what would you say?

I would tell my 10 year old self to be  responsible and accountable, and not to make choices according to what surrounds her because life is made up of the choices we make for ourselves.
